As we head into March and the warmer days ahead, one can't help but think that we snuck out of this winter relatively unscathed. Aside from the October snowstorm and a few flurries here and there, most of us have enjoyed an unseasonably warm winter filled with Spring-like weather and many opportunities to spend time outdoors.
For outdoor enthusiasts, such as bikers and runners, this has meant a jumpstart on their workout routines, and whether they're getting ready for a 5K or simply trying to stay active, they've gotten off to a great start and have hit the ground running.
Perhaps you're not a runner but you have aspirations of reaching your own fitness goals as well. A great way to get started is to find a workout buddy. This person can be a close friend, your spouse, or even a co-worker; as long as they're on board with your plan to stay consistent with a workout routine, they'll fit the bill just fine.
Your workout buddy will provide a little added motivation, support, and a reason to stick to your workout schedule, which is the most important aspect when trying to reach your fitness goal. So find someone who's willing to go out for a jog, take a walk, or even sign up for a class or two at your local gym. You'll be amazed at what you can accomplish when you tackle fitness as a team!
